Jackie Burrell is a former writer for Verywell Mind covering parenting of young adults. She was an education and parenting reporter, and now serves as the food & wine editor at the Bay Area News Group's chain of daily newspapers in the San Francisco Bay Area, including the Mercury News, Times and Tribune.
For the last decade, Jackie Burrell's articles about children, families, college and parenting have appeared regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area News Group's daily newspapers and in papers across the Media News chain. These days, she edits the food & wine section for that newspaper group. But journalistic background aside, Burrell got her parenting expertise the old-fashioned way: as a mother of four, ages 19-25. With two in college, one in grad school and one out in the working world, parenting college-age and young adults is a 24/7 concern - and delight.
Jackie graduated from UC Berkeley.
